The other night I watched a film about Burning Man festival. If you have two hours, this gives a neat look into the lives of others, and their ideas. Even a quick peruse would be worth while.
I don't think I will live and die by the ideas expressed in the film; however there are certainly some aspects where one could allow the ideas to influence the individual & the communal setting. Such an influence would probably leave the individual at a better place than where the individual started.
Let me know what you think.
